Paul graduated CCSU in 2010 and realized one of his dreams as a walk-on to a division 1 college basketball team. He was a very competitive athlete. He enjoyed boxing, swimming, cycling, and running. He excelled in everything he did. Along with being a great athlete, many considered Paul one of the funniest people they ever met.
